Bird Spotting: From tail to beak the American Crow appears totally black. In the right light, however, a green or bluish tinge suddenly makes a showing. Males and females look similar.

Habitat: A good place for spotting the American crow is in woodlands, farmlands and suburban areas.

Nesting: Four to six dull green eggs, spotted dark brown, are placed in a mass of twigs and sticks. The nest is then lined with feathers and grass and placed in a tree.

Bird Bite: Crows may gather in roosts of over half a million birds. The famous crow scene from Hitchcock's The Birds wasn't too far off!
